I’m not a fan of reproductions, but on the other hand, it does give people a chance to own something that has been long out of production… Especially with older games, like for the NES and SNES, it can be a nice thing. That is, as long as it’s being advertised as being a reproduction and not sold as the genuine article. iam8bit is a company that’s coming out with some reproductions that I was tempted to buy.
You perhaps know that my favorite fighter game is Darkstalkers (or Night Warriors in Japan). I just love the character designs and am always on the lookout for nice merchandise.
A while ago, I saw that the official Capcom store offered some extremely nice T-shirts from Darkstalkers. When I saw them, my first thought was that the designs would make some awesome posters. So I asked them on Twitter if there were any plans on making this happen.
